Too Religious for My Taste

Source:  Microsoft Clipart
I love the Christmas carols.  Isn't it wonderful to have secular stations playing songs of praise to our Savior? 

This afternoon I took Abby to hear the local community orchestra and choir perform their Christmas concert.  Other than the challenge of keeping Abby quiet, it was a lovely time.  It opened and closed in prayer and the passages of Scripture were read.  For the most part it was traditional Christmas carols and pleasantly devoid of odes to Santa Claus.  The ministerial association sponsored the performance so this may have been the reason it was more Christ-centered.  Abby and I were the first ones to leave the building as we walked to the performance.  Right behind us walked a father and his son.  "That was just too religious for my taste," he grumbled.  Hmm.  I wonder what he thinks Christmas is about?  And the performance wasn't "religious," but it was Christian.  What I love this man despises.  If he knew my Savior, I'm certain he would have enjoyed this afternoon's performance. 

Christians Awake

Christians, awake, salute the happy morn
Whereon the Saviour of the world was born
Rise to adore the mystery of love
Which hosts of angels chanted from above
With them the joyful tidings first begun
Of God incarnate and the Virgin's Son


  1. Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas!!

  2. Unrelated to this post...
    I just found you through Compassion's site. I snooped around but was feeling pretty tired and almost closed the window until I saw your tab, 'A Baby, Really?' and I knew I needed to read it. After reading the first paragraph I knew where the story was going as your story has been the dream in the back of my mind for years now. I haven't written a detailed blog post on this topic of my life yet, but your story and testimony has prompted me to start thinking about writing one soon. I too have PCOS and have had zero pregnancies. I also work at a crisis pregnancy center. The two do not go hand in hand. I've had a couple scans at work to see how the cysts are doin and in the back of my mind I'm always secretly hoping to see that little black spot in the uterus. Without making my comment on your blog my blog post, I will just say-thank you. For being so transparent and detailed with your story. I am praying that my story will also be used to encourage and give hope to another 'soul cyster'. I look forward to getting to know you through your sweet blog! Blessings to you and your family! (too tired for spell check-please forgive me)
